The phone also has dual front camera with 24 megapixels primary and 2 megapixels secondary sensor.
Reminiscent of the older slider phones that we used to own, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3's sliding mechanism can be customized as well.
The phone has a slider design with neodymium permanent magnets, which according to the company makes the sliding screen more reliable and functional.
The handset sports a 6.39-inch AMOLED display and Xiaomi is claiming it to offer the highest-screen to body ratio among flagship smartphones with 93.4%. It comes in three enticing color options such as Black, Emerald Green and Sapphire Blue. However, those who were expecting the 5G-enabled variant of the phone will have to wait till next year.
There is also a Night Mode feature for taking long exposure shots, AI-based scene recognition and support for slow-motion video recording at 960fps. Now the new variant will also be available for sale.
Mi MIX 3 has been able to cut down the bezels to offer the ultimate viewing experience you can find on a full-screen display. That number is meaningless but puts the phone in second place after the Huawei P20 Pro's 109 rating, and above the iPhone XS Max' 105. It also has dual cameras on both front and back.
Notably, as suggested by the leaks, the Mi Mix 3 comes with a magnetic slider design. The 6GB RAM and 128GB variant will come at a price of $555 (approximately Rs 39,500), while the 8GB RAM and 128GB variant will caost arounf $600 approximately (Rs 42,700). It's going to launch in China this November starting at 3,299 yuan - and that's about $475. It will cost ¥4,999 (P38,619 or $719). As watching it gives us a hint that Xiaomi has improved camera a lot as there was no noise and the whole photo was detailed at the very edge.
The third phone to do away with the notch (coincidentally also the third Chinese brand to follow this trend), Xiaomi's Mi Mix 3 was created to push boundaries... or rather push bezels.
